dad and i hit tillery this evening. got there right before dark and caught plenty of gizzard shad in the swift island cove. tried for a musk rat but missed.....lol. heard they was good bait but i dont know. we fished until 2.00am. i caught 2 blues myself a 20lber and 12 lber. dad hooked up with a nice fish but lost him half way in. then he missed another on the hook set that slimed the line up pretty good. i feel sure both fish he missed was blues. found a spot that had some hogs in it but just couldnt get them to hit. no current and the water was 68 tonight. on the way back in there was a lot of bait in the landing cove so it looks like bait will be getting easier to get. i was getting 2-3 shad every other cast with a 6ft net this evening. had some good laughs at dad for dropping his flashlight in the lake. thats number two for the year. he said he was thinking about hiring a butler to go fishing with him to take care of some of the smaller task that he has going on when fishing. that will be one wet butler for sure. hey maybe the butler can catch a fish.....lol.
